RLOGIN(1)		  BSD General Commands Manual		     RLOGIN(1)

NAME
     rlogin -- remote login

SYNOPSIS
     rlogin [-468Ed] [-e char] [-l username] [-p port] host
     rlogin [-468Ed] [-e char] [-p port] username@host

DESCRIPTION
     rlogin starts a terminal session on a remote host host.

     rlogin first attempts to use the standard Berkeley	rhosts authorization
     mechanism.	 The options are as follows:

     -4		   Use IPv4 addresses only.

     -6		   Use IPv6 addresses only.

     -8		   The -8 option allows	an eight-bit input data	path at	all
		   times; otherwise parity bits	are stripped except when the
		   remote side's stop and start	characters are other than
		   `^S/^Q'.

     -E		   The -E option stops any character from being	recognized as
		   an escape character.	 When used with	the -8 option, this
		   provides a completely transparent connection.

     -d		   The -d option turns on socket debugging (see	setsockopt(2))
		   on the TCP sockets used for communication with the remote
		   host.

     -e	char	   The -e option allows	user specification of the escape char-
		   acter, which	is "~" by default.  This specification may be
		   as a	literal	character, or as an octal value	in the form
		   \nnn.

     -l	username   the -l option specifies an alternate	username for the re-
		   mote	login.	If this	option is not specified, your local
		   username will be used.

     -p	port	   Uses	the given port instead of the one assigned to the ser-
		   vice	"login".  May be given either as symbolic name or as
		   number.

     A line of the form	"<escape char>." disconnects from the remote host.
     Similarly,	the line "<escape char>^Z" will	suspend	the rlogin session,
     and "<escape char><delayed-suspend	char>" suspends	the send portion of
     the rlogin, but allows output from	the remote system.  By default,	the
     tilde ("~") character is the escape character, and	normally control-Y
     ("^Y") is the delayed-suspend character.

     All echoing takes place at	the remote site, so that (except for delays)
     the rlogin	is transparent.	 Flow control via ^S/^Q	and flushing of	input
     and output	on interrupts are handled properly.

ENVIRONMENT
     The following environment variable	is used	by rlogin:

     TERM  Determines the user's terminal type.

BUGS
     More of the environment should be propagated.
